This school year there were a lot of important things that happened. Somethings were good,  some bad, but there were a lot of interesting things in between. First, the Fall Follies occured October 19th, 2017. That same day were underclassmen and Student ID picture day. Quickly following we jumped into red ribbon week where you could wear red to show our soldiers that you were thankful.

On December 7th, there was our high school winter choral concert, and on the 20th, the band concert occured. We also had a wonderful homecoming.  Next, in January 2018, Keystones exams were happening the week of the 8th.  Finally, we have prom, more keystones, and my personal favorite , spring sanity! If you’ve never heard of it, its a huge dodge ball tournament, where you compete against around 10 other teams and try to be the last standing team. If s0, you win! Its very fun and a lot of people participate every year. Even my brother joined in last year and almost won! It seems like more and more join it every year actually.  So If you’re looking for a fun activity to do at the end of the year, try joining spring sanity for a chance.

Also, throughout the year, there was senior skip days, delays, 2 hour delays, early dismissals, and snow days as well. There were many days we had to cancel school due to unknown weather issues. Recently, the weather has been perfect for school activities because its warm and sunny! Football season was also a huge thing this yer. A lot of kids joined the football team but a lot of them got kicked off as well .Some were for bad reasons, others, like my brother, got injured. He said “Its rather to be safe than sorry.” He wanted to go further into a football career, but after getting 2 concussions, he doesnt want that to be a serious problem. So by June, school will be almost done and summer will almost be here! For now, were still learning, and working hard to get the grades we want.

Finally, school will be out June 8th, I’m sure all the students are very excited and happy to see the end of the 2017-2018 school year. Remember though, be safe this summer, and have fun. Also remember to turn in all your missing work before its too late!
